Dead Heart - by Brandon Ford - A twisted tale of death and love
There are a lot of free books out there. Some good and some very, very bad. This one was great. I wish I could remember who recommended this one. It had to come recommended, because I don't go looking for free books any more. Too much I actually want to read and not enough hours in a week.
Carl is an artist when it comes to bringing the dead to life. Actually, it's his job to make a corpse look it's best for the family and loved ones when they come for the viewing. His boss, Xavier would call him an expert restorative artist. He's even due for a raise, he's that good.
Carl, however has found another way to make a quick buck. Seems there is a certain element that will pay to be with the dead.
Now, with the death of a Hollywood icon, Carl sees the chance at a huge payday, but when the time comes to collect he gets more than he bargains for.
Dead Heart is a twisted tale of sick desires and everlasting love. Brandon Ford does a very nice job telling a story of necrophilia without bludgeoning us with all the lurid details and taking us to a place unexpected.
I highly recommend this short story and right now, it's available for free at Amazon.com.
